Structural and civil engineers, and researchers from earth and environmental sciences look at dams from a wide range of perspectives, including the nature of the structures themselves and the impacts they have on water flow, the environment, and the human economy. Among their topics are the effects of jet grouting on wetland invertebrates at Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam at Folsom in California, embankment overflow protection systems and earth dam spillways, discrete-element method for the force distribution in a concrete-faced rockfill dam, the erosive and environmental impact of hydrological correction check dams, factors influencing the extent of hydrological changes of annual maximum and minimum flow downstream from dams in Quebec, growing more rice with less water in Asia, and a novel memory-based stress-stain model for characterizing reservoirs.
